Our Story

Our company was born within the University of Alicante after several years of research in the field of waste management and plastic recycling carried out by the founders of Fych. As a result of those years of work, three technologies were patented focused on increasing the recyclability of plastic products and improving the quality of recycled plastics so they can be used in high-value-added applications, thus contributing to the implementation of the Circular Economy in the sector.

Fych Technologies was created with the goal of transferring the technologies and knowledge generated to the industry and to continue using our research essence to provide technological solutions to waste management.
